Standard library has std.typecons.Nullable https://dlang.org/phobos/std_typecons.html#Nullable

Note that objects are nullable by themselves as classes are reference types.

As for Result it's easy to implement using Tuple and writing some additional functions.

In addition to Nullable in the standard library, there are some packages on dub you might find useful:

* optional: an option type that can also function as a range, for compatibility with std.algorithm.
  Link: https://code.dlang.org/packages/optional

* expected: a result type with customizable error behavior (can panic or throw on failed unwrap) and utility functions for monadic error handling (map, andThen, orElse).
